painting over wallpaper liner


Which wallpaper liner would work best to put on a damaged wall that will be painted over pasted or unpasted or does it make a difference

How bad is the wall damaged? Can it be skim coated with Joint compound to fix it instead of going the wallpaper liner route?

Nu-Wall is another possibility I used a lot. It is a bit pricey but works great.



Until you are accustomed to working with Nu-Wall or the stuff Chris led you to, plan on lining up an extra pair of hands to help you. If the budget allowed, I would always call someone like Chris better at hanging wall coverings than me to do it.

I did not realize nu wall was still out there and as sd said it is a real pain to install. If you are just using wall paper( liner paper), then you hang it like any other paper. It will have instructions on how to paint

Chris, I saw that Abatron was carrying it or took it over last time I needed some of their wood restoration stuff to help a friend rebuild a weird shaped cat boat window frame that had rotted.

NuWal has not gotten any cheaper but if the walls are in rough shape and replastering the surface or something the other alternative, it can really help under the right circumstances. Obviously if there is real structural or water damage or in the case of plaster, the wall is separating from whatever is behind it? You need to address the problem and not hope covering it over will help much.

Thanks for the link, I am glad Abatron bought them out,I always liked the wood restoration stuff. I only used the Nu wall a couple times but it did it's job well, although it was a royal pain to install

It was probably just us. The product page promises easy installation. If it was challenging for you who hangs paper for a living and me who has certainly laid up a few boat hulls and other fiberglass projects, I would not call it easy. I would definitely recommend the stuff if it is needed though. Just be prepared for a challenge---especially if working alone.
